Aida Adib Bamia's book is a significant study of folk poetry as a form of literary resistance and social critique in colonial Algeria just before its war of independence from France (1954–62). Bamia examines the work of Muhammad ibn al-Tayyib עAlili (c. 1894–c. 1954), an Algerian folk poet whose compositions provide a personal and historical documentation of the social concerns of rural Algerians.

With a fine touch, Aida Bamia has explored the work of Muhammad bin al-Tayyib 'Alili (. 894-c. 1954), a hitherto virtually unknown oral poet of Algeria, bringing to her analysis new understanding of folk poetry as part of a people's collective memory and their resistance to colonization. For 'Alili's audience the despair and suffering faced by poor farmers before independence is embodied by the raven, grown old and gray with ceaseless frustration and humiliation.

From East to WestThe raven has turned grayO Reader of the unknownHelp us in our ordeal!With a fine touch, Aida Bamia has explored the work of Muhammad bin al-Tayyib ‘Alili (c.1894–c.1954), a hitherto virtually unknown oral poet of Algeria, bringing to her analysis new understanding of folk poetry as part of a people’s collective memory and their resistance to colonization. For ‘Alili’s audience the despair and suffering faced by poor farmers before independence is embodied by the raven, grown old and gray with ceaseless frustration and humiliation. Because of its oral―and all too often ephemeral―nature, the work of poets such as ‘Alili could escape close scrutiny by French colonial administrators who sought to eradicate nationalistic and ethnic elements. With succinct commentary, Bamia presents an outstanding historical and contextual background for ‘Alili’s repertoire, while she details the richness and variety of poetic forms that had developed in North Africa. In doing so, she shows an intimate grasp of the poet’s repertoire and technique, as well as of the colonial and postcolonial implications of Algerian folklore and poetry. In their citation for the AUC Middle East Studies Award, the judges noted The Graying of the Raven’s “insightful perspective on Algerian society and the experience of colonization as perceived by the individual folk poet.”
